Hillary Clinton and the bid for the 2016 presidency: the biggest "will they or won't they" of our generation. The subject of endless speculation and probably countless Vision Boards across the nation. Also, according to Bill Clinton, a sad sign of "our national tendency to attention deficit disorder when it comes to politics" as well as "the worst expenditure of our time" to wonder about. The latter statement is highly debatable, as envisioning a future friendship with Hillary Clinton is probably integral to one's development as a woman, but, okay, we understand where you're coming from.
The former president attended a fiscal policy summit today, where he emphasized the need to focus on more pressing issues than Hillary's future plans:
We need to be worried about the work at hand, all of us do, so whoever the next president is has an easier set of choices before him or her to build America’s future.
Instead of pondering endlessly about Hillary's next move, we should focus on corporate tax reform and on fostering bipartisanship, he claims. It's distracting and detrimental to go right back to politics at the end of the election, rather than "getting into the grimy details where the future of America will be written."
In the meantime, while we shift our focus, Hillary Clinton will be "having a little fun being a private citizen for the first time in 20 years," writing books, taking a role in the Clinton Foundation, and, of course, dancing around and drinking beers.
